Dr. Cox is a great doctor with a great personality. He is kind, considerate, explains things, does not rush you but makes you feel you are his only patient. He cares about his patients. All of his staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend him and would certainly go back to him.

Went for a consult, never sent me a price. Told me he was very busy and didn't really need the business and it wouldn't hurt his feelings if I didn't choose him. So, I didn't. Horrible.

Dr. Cox completed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty procedure on my nose in December and this was my 3 month follow up appointment (but actually 6 months because of COVID19). He answered any questions I had in regards to regaining complete feeling back, he is very attentive when listening, and very respective of your time and appointment. I have always enjoyed my appointments with Dr. Cox and his assistant, Claire, because they are always so nice and actually there for the patient’s needs. I have already referred some friends and family to him, if they choose to correct a deviate septum.

Starting from the pre-op diagnosis through surgery and post-op care, Dr. Cox has been outstanding. He has been caring, compassionate, and kind, and his medical care has been first class. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
